Don't miss the biggest consumer trade show for paddlesports!

The event of the year for canoeists is here—Canoecopia, the largest consumer tradeshow for paddlers, kicks off Friday afternoon and Rapid Media will be there. 

Look forward to 150 seminars, speakers and clinics over the weekend so you can get inspired and learn everything you need to know to select, purchase and use the perfect gear for your style of paddling. Plus, more than 200 manufacturers, outfitters and guides, schools and other paddling organizations will be exhibiting. If you want to see the latest buzz in the paddling world, you'll find it at Canoecopia.

Highlights: Check out Kevin Callan's presentation on his epic canoe journey this past summer, "Once Around Algonquin Park." Dave and Amy Freeman will also share stories from their 11,700-mile journey across North America by canoe, kayak and dog sled.  Cliff Jacobson will share this 40 favorite items he brings on every canoe trip and why you need them too.  Rapid Media publisher, Scott MacGregor, will also present on "Trip Stories that Don't Suck," perfect for the aspiring adventure writer. 



Other highlights include Julie Buckles on her year-long canoe honeymoon, traveling the Voyageur Highway—1,700 miles from Lake Superior to Wollaston Lake where she and husband Charly stayed for the winter.  And for those looking to get their dogs into paddling, head to
